Repurposed Chalkboard Memo Stand

4 Materials
1 Hour

I'm using what I have in the junk pile today to create a chalkboard memo stand.

This tree slice cutting board was in the donation pile but I pulled it out to use it for a new project.

The first thing I did was to look for a dowel I could use to hold up the chalkboard.

The dowel I found was the wrung of an old chair. The stand I'm using was a piece of a candle holder leftover from another project.

I glued the stand to the base with  E6000 glue. I attached the cutting board to the dowel using a few random pieces from my junk supply.

I attached a small piece of Scrabble tray with hot glue to the front to hold chalk. You can find Scrabble trays on Amazon.

I painted the entire piece with black chalkboard paint from the craft store then added a clip to the top of the board to hold notes or photos.

This unique piece can sit on your desk or on the kitchen counter to hold notes and you can write little reminders with chalk. Clip a photo or note to the chalkboard for additional reminders.

    I really like your finished product and the use it is put to. But, I don't think I could have covered up that gorgeous piece of wood. All the rings and colours would make a unique piece to stand alone. Wish I had a junk pile with pieces like that.

      I would love a couple of your “wood cookies”! It is very generous of you to send some off to other crafters who aren't so fortunate. You are a good person!

    I am a wood lover of grain and stain.......I can't tell this is a piece of wood. Although it is nice and you did what you wanted......it is nice.
